Gaudrelle Vouvray Clos de la Huppe is coming from a very specific vineyard called "Clos de la Huppe". 
all the plowing and the work in the vineyard is done by hand with the help of a horse. 

This wine is named after the Eurasian hoopoe, a bird species that enjoys our vineyards again since we got into more natural farming. Draft horse, manual harvesting, fermentation with indigenous yeasts and an 18-month aging on the lees make for a characterful and mineral wine.
